    If this is true, it appears that people with glasses can't use the 3d effect on most games.
    This bother me as I wear glasses and I could not use the 3d.
    Then again though, I dont need it most times and when I do,
    I will take of my glasses.
    Thoughts?

    That's really annoying sounding. But hey, what can they do?

    If this is true, the 3DS will be a major flop.

    Man, that stinks. Either I won't use 3D that much or I'll just take off my glasses when I play. Luckily I can see ok most of the time without glasses. I wonder why Nintendo hasn't mentioned this? [​IMG]

    Although I won't use 3D, it still sucks because I wear glasses.

    Again, different people have different responses to the 3D effect, to be sure, you're gonna have to see it yourself.

    Damn, that sucks! Means parallax is a bust for everyone with glasses (including me).
    Might be a good time to pick up contacts though...

    Bah, I'll believe it when it happens to me. The description doesn't even mention what his perscription was, or if he was using perscription sunglasses. Seems like a very isolated event that may have been to an expired perscription, or the fact he could have grabbed the wrong pair of glasses.

    I have perscription glasses, and I can view 3D movies with the glasses on. I call bullshit.

    Unfortunately, I don't think there will be any way to tell if 3D is required to beat the game (without a walkthrough) except to either buy it and hope for the best or wait until someone has tried to beat it without 3D.

    This is a statement from one person. As much as the 3DS has been play tested at this point, you would think the issue would have been brought up before hand, if it universally does not work with people wearing glasses.

    it could be the think where people complained about the headaches etc where those people had glasses
    that would explain it since this guy said he had that problem with it
    or maybe he is a troll and lied
    idk but it makes me worry
    still, the power in the hardware is the major motivation, no the 3d for me

    I fall under the category of, "needs prescription glasses constantly" so taking them off for 3D movies is NOT an option. I find it unbelievable that when I tell people trying to sell anything 3D to me, they always go for, "why not get contacts or laser eye surgery?"

    Had high hopes that the 3DS will make 3D fun but this news kinda disappoints me.

    Oh no! Now I'll have to remove my glasses two whole minutes to see the 3D effect before turning it off for good!
    Seriously, we shouldn't care about 3D. Its just a gimmick.

    It's a good job I'm myopic rather than hyperopic.

    it said he was nearsighted with x2.5 i think
    i think i may have worse then that
    as i am nearsighted but all is a blur 2ft and beyond without them
    i dont like contacts and i dont have the option to have lasics yet

    i hope it is not true for me
    i still am preordering it though

    I wear glasses, but I don't see myself using 3D too much anyway. I might take off my glasses if I find it absolutely necessary, as I can still see about 1.5 feet without them.

    2.5 strength? Hot damn, that's powerful. I'm guessing that maybe lowering the 3D should fix it for lower strength prescriptions.
